A List for Summer Boredom

This summer is going to be an interesting one for us. Normal years, the kids are at camps and we do a big trip somewhere. Last year, I was home with the kids all day. No camps, only visiting grandparents outside with masks and socially distanced. This year Jonny works nights so he will be home with the kids during the first part of the day.

I was pretty structured with the days last year because I was also trying to work from home. But my husband won't need to be as structured so I just thought I'd put together a list of things that they could do if they found themselves bored. 

Here are some of the suggestions and the printout I made for them.

Some of these take more planning and some of these seem obvious -- but I just wanted a list of things that they could check out if they were feeling bored. 

We did backyard camping last year -- and the kids loved it. We also do backyard picnics last year and I think it would be fun to explore some new places to picnic this year. I'd love to catch a baseball game and plan a San Francisco or Oakland Zoo trip.

In Sacramento at Estelle Bakery they have a high-tea for two that you can order for pick up. I think that would be a fun idea with the kids, maybe even remind them of our amazing trip to London.

Anyways, there is so much to do over the summer, it's all about remembering what sounds fun when the boredom strikes.

What are you looking forward to doing this summer with your family?
